Default Has anyone used PowerBronze?

I am thinking of getting a Hugger (red) and some Lowers (red)
from www.mandp.com.

The are selling Powerbronze versions at 29.99 and 119.99 respectively and I want to know if the quality and colour is ok.

http://www.powerbronze.co.uk/home.html

Has anyone else used them?

Had powerbronze huggers on my K4 they were OK. Don't think they are an exact colour match though unless you ask for it and pay extra.

I think the hugger that was on the SV when I got it was powerbronze. Cracked in 3 different places over time and I ended up binning it and buying a better one

Ive heard some stories about bad fit and poor quality of powerbronze stuff,could be wrong though

i got the colour matched belly pan from powerbronze and its a poor product i had to wait 9weeks for it! they kept blaming the painters,its very flimsy and i went over a road that had just been layed and the gravely bits knocked the **** out of the pan! the paint was all chipped off underneath. as for a hugger i think they look to big the skidmarks one looks loads better!
so i would'nt bother if i were you
